I'll assume that you're talking about Class::MethodMaker. MethodMaker defines its methods on-the-fly when the class loads. When you ask "where do they put the accessors?", do you mean "where is the accessor implementation written out to a file?"? If that's what you mean, the accessor implementation isn't written out to a file-- it's just evaluated at compile-time.

To modify these methods, you just need to define your own. To quote from the perldoc:

To override any generated methods, it is sufficient to ensure that the overriding method is defined when Class::MethodMaker is called. Note that the use keyword introduces a BEGIN block, so you may need to define (or at least declare) your overriding method in a BEGIN block.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
